How To Make a Survival Water Filter

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

Water is essential to life.People can live up to a week without food, but only two to three days without water. Clean water can be hard to find if you get stranded in the wild or if there is an emergency. You can make this filter very easy with basic materials that you can find in the wild or can buy very cheap
If you have to find your own water , you must be able to strain out impurities that can make you sick.

First lets cut off the back of the bottle this is where we are going to put the water in.

Using your knife, scissors, or anything sharp, make a small hole in the center of the cap. In my case i used my knife and easily made a nice hole in the center.
scissors work just as well.

Put a filter over the mouth of the bottle and tighten the cap over it. A filter will keep the sand inside the bottle and keep it from falling out. The cap will hold the filter in place. You can use a coffee filter or some cloth. In my case we used a piece of cloth

Now add some gravel or small rocks. In our case We used rocks.
try using two types of gravel or rocks: fine gravel or small rocks and a chunky gravel or bigger ricks. First put in the big rocks and then the smaller rocks Also if you can boil the rocks or gravel to kill the impurities that can make you sick

Now add a layer of sand
You can use any type of sand you want. You can find almost sand every where
if you are near a river just walk down stream and you will find sand.
Like we did

Now add a layer with activated charcoal. If the charcoal comes in large pieces, you will need to break them down into smaller pieces. Do this by putting the chunks inside a bag, and crushing them with a hard object .

Now add another layer of sand
You can use any type of sand you want like before

And now add a cloth or something like that. You can also use grass but you want to refresh the grass everytime you put water in the filter.

Pour the water back through the filter if it is not clear.[4] Once the water stops dripping, take the jar out from under the filter., then pour the filtered water back in the filter. You may need to repeat the filtering process two or three times before the water runs clear.

Boil the water for at least one minute to make it safe to drink.
So lets make a fire. First lets collect some wood and birch bark. We are going to use the birch bark as a fire starter.
The water will also still contain dangerous bacteria, chemicals, and microorganisms. You can get rid of all these by boiling the water for at least one minute

  1. Thank you, I found your channel from Canadian Peppers site, and subscribed
    to your channel just now! Love how you showed each step so well. I’m not
    sure where there is sand and charcoal in our natural surrounding where we
    live, so I’m wondering if there is something else you can recommend for
    those two things, besides of course, getting those things now while we can
    and putting them in places to carry with you, or in your home etc. but I’m
    assuming this would be a situation where you would use this technique when
    you didn’t have anything except what you could find laying around, in a
    situation where you no longer have other means of filtration you might have
    stored to use, or whatever…this being a great solution for filtration no
    matter what! Thank you so much! Glad I found your channel : )

  2. great video thank you maybe one suggestion…this seems a perfect solution
    in most water situations with only one exception and that is industrial
    seepage and sewage water. In a more urban set-up this should be ascertained
    if the water came from such a source. Then another source must be found if
    at all possible. Other than that outstanding video. Peace-

  3. Simple, sensible, and so necessary. I added this one to my playlist. Much
    appreciation and blessings to you.

  4. Yep. Great to teach people that both filtering & a rolling boil is
    required. Some believe one step will do.Cheers

    1. +Prepper Hub that sounds like a great start. I know how to survive in the
      wild so I am currently interested in urban survival. I don’t consider
      myself a prepper because they are too focused on collecting and gathering
      things that others can take away from them. I like to utilize the gray man
